From the glory to the guts, there's plenty to be sorted out as the Washington area takes another swing at landing its first Olympic Games. But the ball is now officially rolling.
Tiger Woods, who revolutionized golf when he came onto the scene more than a decade ago, is about to do the same to the area's sports scene.
"What a difference a year makes," said Mr. Sweeney, who personally wrote letters to PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem urging him to bring an event back to Washington. "It's unbelievable."
"It's all about Tiger," said Bob Sweeney, executive director of the Greater Washington Sports Alliance, a business group dedicated to attracting events to the area. "Not only is he the world's greatest golfer, but he has the best name and the best marketability. It's going to have an incredible impact on the city. Washington doesn't get these kinds of opportunities in the sports world, not since [the Redskins] were in the Super Bowl."
